Misty

Misty “Misty” is a jazz standard written in 1954 by the pianist Erroll Garner.

Originally composed as an instrumental following the traditional 32-bar format, the tune later had lyrics by Johnny Burke and became the signature song of Johnny Mathis, reaching #12 on the U.S. Pop Singles chart in 1959. It has been covered numerous times, perhaps most notably by Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan (1959), Frank Sinatra and Earl Grant (1961), Lloyd Price (1963), and also by Ray Stevens (1975) as a country song. It was also used as a theme song for NBC’s Today Show for most of the 1960s.

Erroll Garner’s version of the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1991,[1] and Johnny Mathis version of the song was inducted in 2002. The song plays a key role in the plot of the movie Play Misty for Me (1971).

Misty is a AABA 32 bar form.
